Aristocrats_m4

Penn Jillette, Sarah Silverman, Billy the Mime and Paul Provenza at the premiere of The Aristocrats.

The most anticipated comedy movie of the summer opens nationwide this week, and if the publicity-coup ban of the movie by AMC Theaters is any indication, it's going to be hilarious. The movie is just a bunch of comedians (including Sarah Silverman, Bob Saget, Jon Stewart, a mime, and the South Park boys) telling the same dirty joke over and over, each one telling their own twisted version. Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller) and comic Paul Provenza made the movie, using digital footage taken over several years.

The Aristocrats official website. (Includes a letter from Penn Jillette and a sound board.)

Cartman tells the joke. (warning: this site is very offensive/adult)

Adam Carolla's new show, Too Late with Adam Carolla, premieres next Monday at 11:30 p / 10:30c. Here's a message from Adam:

"Hey, it's your old pal Adam Carolla here. Can you imagine a job where you get paid just to pretend you're interested in what other people have to say? Well, Comedy Central just gave me that job. It's called Too Late with Adam Carolla. Now ask me a question so I can start pretending to be interested."

Today's topic is "Student/Teacher sex." Ask a question and maybe, just maybe, you'll be woken up one day this week by Adam Carolla wanting to discuss student/teacher sex!
